***Note: Auto-Amazon is currently in beta. If you're a yearly customer, send us a message, and we'll get you set up. 😄

What is Auto-Amazon?

Auto-Amazon will detect all Amazon links on your site and add them to Lasso, with data (including price, title, image, and Prime status). It'll also automatically add your Amazon ID to any monetized links.

If you need to change your Amazon tag at any point, Auto-Amazon will also take care of this for you.

Additionally, we're testing multiple tracking IDs with Auto-Amazon. Read on to see how you can whitelist certain IDs, so you can add those to your Lasso Links.

How to Use Auto-Amazon

1. We recommend you start on a staging site (included with all yearly plans!). If you're using your live site, we recommend generating a full backup that you can restore if needed.

(Note: This isn't normally the case with new Lasso features. Due to Auto-Amazon still being in beta and the revenue effects it could have, we're being overly cautious.)

2. Go to Settings > General and make sure you’ve added all Custom Post Types where Amazon links might live.

3. Go to Settings > Amazon, and you’ll see the Auto-Amazon feature in the left column.

4. Under "Tracking ID for This Site", add your Primary Tracking ID. This is the Amazon tag you'll use most often.

5. If you have multiple Amazon IDs, toggle "Allow Multiple Tracking IDs" to the on position.

6. Under "Tracking ID Whitelist", add any Amazon IDs you'd like Lasso to ignore. When Lasso monetizes your Amazon links, we won't change these IDs.

7. Toggle "Enable Amazon Auto-Monetization" to the on position.

8. Hit the Save Changes button in the bottom right corner.

Then Lasso will scan your site for any and all Amazon links. It'll monetize them and add them to Lasso automatically. 🎉
